On the 28th February 1962, The eighth International Short Film Festival Oberhausen was held in North Rhine-Westphalia. It was there that twenty-six young Germany filmmakers gathered and created the Oberhausen Manifesto, declaring 'old film is dead. We believe in the new one.' The aim was to bring 'the birth of a new aesthetically, politically and financially independent German cinema'.
Now the Goeth Institut are holding a programme of events showcasing the films made as part of The Oberhausen Manifesto project. Between the 28th October - 18th November, you can see a selection of short and feature films for just £3 each.
